CROSSING researcher Ágnes Kiss from the ENCRYPTO group has been invited as an outstanding young researcher to the Heidelberg Laureate Forum 2018. Distinguished speakers at the HLF 2018 include highly influential researchers in cryptography such as Whitfield Diffie (Turing Award 2015), Martin Hellman (Turing Award 2015), and Silvio Micali (Turing Award 2012). The 5th HLF will take place September 23-28, 2018 in Heidelberg.
We wish Ágnes a great time at the HLF and inspiring discussions with the world’s most reputed researchers in computer science and mathematics.
In 2013, Klaus Tschira established the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF), a subsidiary of the German foundation Klaus Tschira Stiftung, with the goal of fostering scientific exchange and young researchers of mathematics and computer science. The HLFF hosts the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), an international and cross-generational networking event where 200 outstanding young researchers from mathematics and computer science (100 from each discipline) interact with the recipients of most prestigious prizes in these disciplines: the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the ACM Prize in Computing, the Fields Medal and the Nevanlinna Prize.
